I promised to show you some spinning, and here it is! I participated in the Tour de Fleece this year (you challenge yourself in some way with spinning while the Tour de France is going on) and my only goal was to spin some every day - and I (mostly) met the goal. I took… Continue reading FO Friday
I have one FO to show you and a couple of WiPs to show you today. (I know, it's not FO Friday yet, but odds are I won't get around to posting again on Friday - hubby is out of town again, which causes all kinds of craziness in our house!) I finished up the Gotland… Continue reading WiP Wednesday
Look what my husband got me for Valentine's Day! (Or rather, he told me to go ahead and order it for Valentine's Day!) 🙂 She's a Majacraft Rose. I don't have a name for her yet, but I've got a few ideas kicking around in my head, so she'll probably have a name very soon.… Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day! (a bit early)
I've been working on socks a lot lately, since they're small and portable - my boys are in art classes one day a week now, and their ages are such that, of course, they can't be in the same class, so I have to sit for 2 hours straight each week - perfect time to knit! … Continue reading WiP Wednesday
So, I am now done with all my Christmas knitting!! Woo Hoo!! Now I just need to wrap everything. I might decide to knit one more thing as a gift, but it shouldn't take me very long if I do decide to knit it up. We'll see. But all my planned gift knitting is done,… Continue reading WiP Wednesday
Sorry I haven't posted in a while - I keep getting caught up in life and don't have time (or forget!) to pop in here and post! If you would please send some kitty mojo to my poor 17-year-old furbaby Harpo, I'd greatly appreciate it - we discovered that he has a growth in his belly… Continue reading WiP Wednesday
I finally finished my very first handspun shawl! I spun this yarn about two years ago, and started knitting this shawl in June. It got sent to hibernation for a while, but now it's done! Pattern: Garden of Alla Yarn: my own handspun, from Gale's Art BBFL roving, in colorway 'Stormy Sea' (see below for more… Continue reading Handspun Shawl
I snagged a great deal on some shoes the other day: These are Re-Mixed shoes in the Deco style. Olive and Brown colors. It's a 1920's inspired vintage recreation. These are normally $200 and I got them for $65 at Amazon. Great deal, huh? I normally wouldn't spend even that much on shoes (I'm a… Continue reading New Shoes!
We went camping in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park this last weekend. The trees were all starting to turn colors already - just beautiful! We had never stayed directly in the park before, so we were a little nervous about bears. All food had to be kept locked in the car. And, there are… Continue reading Beautiful Smoky Mountains
Tuesday was my birthday - I won't say how old I am - other than to say that I'm now one year closer to the big 4-0. 🙁 I certainly don't feel like I'm in my (late!) 30's! But, man, I'm really happy with my birthday present - finally a Democratic Nominee!!!!!! Yipee!!! I'm so… Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me!
